I am guest designing again at the CROPSHOP so I made a note book for a friend of mine. I love making these little notebooks for family and friends.  They are great next to the computer, the phone or in a purse.  There a several online tutorials like this ONE  on how to make a version of this with post it notes.. If you want to use the larger  paper packs from the Dollar Store like this one, the measurements are a piece of card stock 5 ½  by 9 ½  scored at 4,4 ½ and 5.

The top panel was created using these steps.
1.       Cut a 51/2 by 4-inch piece of white card stock.
2.       Emboss it with the Cuttlebug Swiss dot embossing folder.
3.       Frame that with largest Frantic Stamper Fancy Frames 1.
4.       The center oval was made by using several Sue Wilson dies: Ornate Oval Just for You, Montreal, and Toronto.  The great thing about Sue’s designs is that many of them are interchangeable.
5.       To finish the bottom, I used Elizabeth Craft’s Dogwood 2 and Ostrich Fern.  Prills finished the       centers of the flowers.
6.       The little hummingbirds are from Poppy Stamps.
